I didn't post yesterday but I did the 3-mile for Abs.

If anyone has done the full 4-5 miles on any of her videos, what are the 4th and 5th mile like? Does Leslie follow her usual pattern and speed up each mile until the last mile or cool down/recovery? What I'm trying to figure out is if miles 4 & 5 are faster than mile 3. I have her older videos that stop at mile 3 and mile 3 has me huffing now. I don't know if I could go much faster and then even faster yet during the next 2 miles.

10-03-2011, 04:43 PM
4 and 5 are not faster than the 3rd mile. all of the miles are 15 minutes long, except for the 3rd mile that is 12 minutes.

here is a breakdown on the dvd

"there is a 5 minute warm up

Mile one: introduces the double tap out
The shift wth arm punches

Mile 2: Uses the stretchie
You do a side to side and kick back together
step up and back jog 3 times (Like in Punch Out)
Knee up with stretchie

Mile 3: Knee up 4 and kick back 4
Out out in in
Shift and punch
1-2 jog jog
Boosted walking!

Mile 4: Uses the stretchie and is the Bootcamp
Lunges, and Lunches with Bicep curls
Grapevine with kick back
Squats and lunges alternate
Do some jogging with the grapevine
Boosted walking
Shift and Punch

Mile 5: Classic walk

Total time with stretch was 87 minutes and I burned 500 calories using my HRM"

hope this helps!

Thanks. Leslie has been the only program that I like. I hate feeling like my chest is going to explode if I don't stop. I'm going to stop being a scaredy cat....I'm going to try the 4 miler.

10-04-2011, 04:21 PM
I haven't even heard of her really big miles!! I am going to join. I have her 5 mile walk and 1mile advanced jog. I did the jogging one for the first time yesterday and it felt good! It was not hard like I assumed it would be and I'm not sore at all today.

10-05-2011, 11:13 AM
Yesterday - 1-mile walk, LS Pilates and weights/crunches.

Looking forward to receiving new LS DVD. It has been shipped.

Hi girls!!:wave:

Did the 3 Mile Boot Camp this morning!!:carrot: I'm never sorry I worked out, NEVER!

Free-I have the 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk and all 5 miles are 12 minutes on that one. One doesn't seem to be any more strenuous than the others, but I usually get tired of moving my arms on mile 4!

I'm going to have to run to Wal Mart for some things this weekend. I am just going to have to check out the new DVD!

10-07-2011, 11:34 AM
Last night - 3-Mile Bootcamp and some additional strength training. Start week 4 of C25K this evening

10-08-2011, 08:09 AM

here's this thread!! I looked before but didn't see it for some reason. Hope everyone is getting off to a great start in October!

I've been doing a bit more Wii Fit than WATP because I was still getting over that cold and WATP is a little bit harder to breathe than Wii! lol! But I have been doing the 2 mile WATP the past couple of days - that's a really good level for me right now although I will need to find my old VHS tapes to try out a 3 miler some time, and probably end up buying some dvds.

I tried a non-WATP walk today with Chris Freytag. It didn't give the mileage, though. It was 45 minutes but you also stopped walking to do strength training intervals. It was a great workout because even the walking was a bit more intense than the WATP I have been doing - although I know there are other versions of the 2 mile walk that are more intense, the one I get on my cable OnDemand is the basic 2 mile "Getting Started" or something like that.

I have to say that I am really pleased with how far I've progressed since I started daily workouts on September 1. Even getting through the 1 mile WATP was hard but now that feels like I barely break a sweat so I've really only been doing the 2 miles. I may start trying the 1 mile in the mornings and then do the 2 mile one at my normal workout in the evenings. I really really want to get to Onederland and am willing to push myself a lot to do it soon!

Today - 3 mile weight loss walk (with 3 lb weights) and strength training.

10-09-2011, 06:00 PM
Got the five really big miles dvd and can't wait to try it. I really like the walk strong with weights. Also on that dvd are walk and kick, walk and jog and power mile. They are all good.

10-10-2011, 04:07 PM
I thought Leslie looked heavier in the new dvd. But I was looking at some clips of dvds on and Mary Kay Bruenig really gained weight over the years. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

10-12-2011, 01:31 PM
Received the new LS DVD yesterday. Plan on working out with it tonight.

Finished Week 4 of the C25K yesterday morning. Start week 5 tomorrow evening. I have been alternating my LS workouts with my walk/jogging. It has been working out well so far.

10-13-2011, 10:45 PM
Yesterday - LS new DVD first three miles. It was different and a lot of new moves. I hate tap outs (bad right knee) but I did like what I have seen so far. I don't like the close ups of the young, tight waists, but I think Leslie is trying to go towards a younger, hip, fit crowd.

Today - WK5Day1 C25K.

10-14-2011, 02:51 AM
So finally got the 5 mile dvd today! Was supposed to be here last friday but I guess the holiday messed that up...anyway, haven't tried it yet but plan to tomorrow. Not all 5 miles but going to start it and see how it is. Love that the stretch band came with it, didn't realize it did.

10-15-2011, 09:51 PM
I haven't even heard of her really big miles!! I am going to join. I have her 5 mile walk and 1mile advanced jog. I did the jogging one for the first time yesterday and it felt good! It was not hard like I assumed it would be and I'm not sore at all today.

Leslie has a jogging dvd/video??? No way!!! I didn't know that! cool. And you say its not hard, I may be inclined to give it a try then. I'm not one that likes to run or jog, I like to walk fast. I thought about jogging but I faint just thinking about it! LOL. I am so out of shape.

I found that Leslie's 3 mile is a bit boring, but I still like her. Maybe I should start using her videos again, perhaps this will get me motivated and stay motivated.

I just became lazy the past 3 or 4 years and cant get out of dul drums! UGH.

Anyways...I'll have to look for Leslie's other videos. (I didnt know she had mile 4 or 5!) :smug:

Hello everyone! I've been hanging in there and averaging 2-3 miles weekdays.

I wanted to buy the new 5 mile DVD, but Wal Mart didn't have it that day. But I did get the Fast & Firm 4 Really Big Miles DVD. I just really wanted a new walk to try. I don't want it to get boring or to get in a rut of doing the same ones over and over.

I love the Fast & Firm was a great workout and I love the resistance band exercises in it. Leslie does a few yoga moves during the stretch and I kinda liked them. I've never done yoga, so I may give her yoga DVD a look.

Keep walkin'!!!:running:

10-18-2011, 02:07 PM
Love Leslie's videos! Even if I struggle with eating I try to do 2 miles of any of her videos at least 3 days a week.

I should be receiving 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk sometime very soon! Excited!!!! I <3 Walk at Home!

10-18-2011, 03:08 PM
Did the 2 Mile Power Walk With Friends. No weights today. My upper body is so sore (in a good way) from the resistance band yesterday!!

10-18-2011, 06:55 PM
Monday - Completed the new 5 Mile DVD. Did miles 3-5. It is a pretty good workout with new moves. Love the band work.

Today - Finished Week 5 of C25K. Jogged 20 mins (2 miles) without walking.

10-19-2011, 01:44 PM
I did most of the 3 Mile Weight Loss Walk w/ 2# weights this morning. Had to fast forward through part of the last mile so I would be on time for work!

10-22-2011, 12:14 PM
Yesterday - LS New 5 Mile DVD (first three miles) then lifted some weights and crunches.

This morning - Completed Week 6, Day 2 of C25K.

10-22-2011, 10:32 PM
I really like the Burn Body Fat, Sculpt Your Arms DVD. It uses weights and I need that at my age 62.

10-24-2011, 10:10 AM

Thanks, Cathy.

Hi, actually I thought Leslie looked a lot skinnier in her new DVDs. I have her old videos from 2001 and I watched one last night the 1 mile one and her outter thighs were much bigger than her 2010 DVDs I just bought.

11-06-2011, 06:06 PM
Anyone lost a lot of weight using LS walk slim?

11-06-2011, 06:16 PM
hi all! thanks to you gals mentioning that LS has 5 mile dvd programs available, I had to get one for myself!!! So I went to Best Buy and decided on the "Walk Slim 5 really big miles" DVD Set. I LOVE it!!! I was totally looking for a work out that wasn't all bouncy bouncy and dancing stuff like the new stuff is today. And actually Denise Austin wasn't doing it for me this time either. I wanted something different, and NO bounce!! AND LS dvd's deliver!!!
I was sweating, feeling the workout without tons of bouncing or dance moves.

Thank you for this thread and thank god for this website!!!

Right now I am only doing 1 mile about 2 or 3 times per week. My goal is to do 1 mile 7 days a week.
